C.; 1898; page 77] tells us the owl «betokens in arms one who is vigilant and of acute wit» and «it was the favourite bird of Minerva, and was borne b the Athenians in their standards».

Quarterly Or and Argent and quarterly Gules and Argent, comparison

Quarterly Or and Argent, schema

The rule of tincture, «metal should not be put on metal, nor colour on colour», is the most famous rule of the heraldry. In the divisions of the field, for example, party per fess, party per pale, quartered, etc., the tinctures are beside each other, not one on top of the other, because the divisions are not charges, so the rule of tincture does not apply. Although as a rule of aesthetics may be useful in the case of divisions.

Blazon writen by the College of Arms for the coat of arms of Michael John Huxley-Evans «Per fess nebuly Sable and Ermine in chief a Rose Argent barbed and seeded proper within a wreath of Thorns Or in base three Boar's Heads erased Sable armed Or.», but to differentiate from the «armed» of the claws, I prefer «tusked» to «armed» for the defenses/tusks of the boar's heads.
